We can be depressed for a variety of reasons - disappointment, bereavement, rejection. Ultimately depression requires identification of the cause. If you are dealing with loss and life change counselling is often sufficent. If you are burned out from work or being a caregiver then counselling and self care are both important. If you suffer from longterm depression then there can be a three-fold treatment of selfcare, counselling and medication that can be helpful. Not all depression requires medical intervention but for maybe people it is a helpful part of recovering hope.

Depression is the common cold of psychology. Like anxiety and stress, depression is quite commonly reported by consumers of psychotherapy. I am experienced, comfortable, and patient with treating depression. I am neither strongly opposed nor strongly supportive of pharmacotherapeutics. I engage an approach that is personal-growth-centered and as independent of the medical model as is possible.

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.

The dark clouds of depression can cast a shadow on even the best parts of our lives. When you stop enjoying things you used to, are sad and tearful, when you have problems sleeping or focusing, everything in life can get so much harder. By working with a supportive psychologist who listens, we can develop strategies to take our lives back and restore the joy and happiness.

I use a Cognitive-Behavioural approach to treating depression, along with a holistic approach of bringing health to the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual realms of a person. Depression affects a person on all these levels and therefore needs to be treated that way. You can expect to learn skills, increase awareness of negative thought patterns and change them, and implement changes to your lifestyle which will help battle depression.

The depression of our feelings can make things feel better for the moment and can even be a healthy way to manage in the short-term. The problem arises when we push these feelings down over time. What makes it worse is that others may even promote the depression of our feelings. But our feelings do not go away and we begin to feel depressed. Learning to reengage with our feelings helps us rediscover our strength in managing them. I have successfully worked with people from a variety of backgrounds to treat depression and look forward to working with you. Visit my website at www.prairieowlpsychology.ca from more details.

Often prolonged depression or depression that is resistant to medication is not as much a clinical depression as it is a reaction to a series of environmental or interpersonal situations that leave us feeling chronically helpless with low self-worth. This is especially true when the situations happen during childhood. Moving beyond the helplessness often requires medication but more importantly, an opportunity to understand and process those negative situations. Making sense of what we are feeling helps us to put our experiences in perspective, process and release the lingering emotions related to those experiences, and move on towards a happy and productive life.

Understanding depression means knowing it is more than just "being sad". It can mean feeling less motivated, more tired, more angry or irritable, less interest in things that used to be enjoyable, feeling isolated and lonely, or just wanting it all to be over. The good news is that once we understand what depression means for you, II can work with you through one of several evidence-based therapies that have been shown to significantly reduce these symptoms and return your ability to live a fuller life.

Based on clinical research, spending time with animals can help lessen the symptoms of depression-- particularly when combined with counselling. Relationships formed with horses can illustrate to clients the impact that depression is having in their life and relationships. This can both motivate the client to move towards healing and also provide the safety needed to better understand the challenges they are facing and to make movement toward change.
